Accelerate by ottoberkeley

This image was captured at Bank Underground Station, which always struck me as ideal for the concept of a blurred train on the underground. Aside from its clean, metallic finish, it’s one of only a few stations in London with curved platforms, which I felt made it perfect for emphasising a sense of perspective as a train came along the tunnel.

The postprocessing workflow for this image was split into two stages: I captured five bracketed exposures early in the morning while the station was empty, and used luminosity masks to achieve a balanced finish for the bright lights and the gritty texture along the platform. I then used separate four-second exposures for the first westbound Central Line train of the morning — one as it pulled into the platform, and another as it departed — and blended these together to produce the final image.

Don’t Look Down by paulreiffer

The view from the tallest observation platform in the world, opening in Winter 2015 – the Shanghai Tower.
At 632m, while the top may be lower than Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, this is currently the highest building floor the public can access on earth and looks down upon two other mega-tall skyscrapers, the Jin Mao Tower (left) at 420m and the SWFC (right) at 492m high.
